APC, represented by its National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, while speaking with newsmen in Abuja stated that it is only the London doctors attending to President Muhammadu Buhari’s health that can decide when the President will come back to Nigeria. The party also said that President Buhari is fast recovering from his illness which is contrary to allegations that he is on life support.
“We are glad to inform you that President Muhammadu Buhari is recovering in a very robust manner. We hope he takes it easy and when he comes back, I have no doubt at all that we will have a new and active period of activities.’’
However, he said only the president’s doctors abroad could decide when he would be fit to return to the country. It can be recalled that Gov. Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State had recently alleged that President Buhari was on life-support in a London Hospital where he is receiving medical attention.
The APC national chairman, said he would wait for an appropriate time before responding to Gov. Fayose’s comment. “If I respond, I will be dignifying him. “At the appropriate time, people will answer him; at the appropriate level; at the appropriate time. “He is in a different world altogether.’’
According to him, the party maintains its earlier position on the restructuring of the country as clearly stated in its manifesto. He further said the party’s leadership would do all it could at all times to ensure that the unity of the country was preserved. He added that the APC leadership was ready to listen to whatever grievances any group in the country might have.
